The Office of Student Union and Activities, in accordance with the Policies and Procedures of Stony Brook University, sets forth the following guest policies and procedures governing student events. The goals of these policies are:
- To help university students and organizations plan and implement events on campus.
- To uphold the mission of the university through support of co-curricular activities for the students of the Stony Brook University.
- To help create and maintain a safe and healthy environment for our students, faculty, staff and guests of the University. Ask student activities for guest policy.
Stony Brook students and/or organizations will be held accountable for the actions of their guests. The event organizer with the guidance and advice from his/her assigned Program Advisor will determine the number of guests allowed per student for each event. The following options are to be used to make this determination: Stony Brook University students only, Stony Brook University student plus one (1) guest, Stony Brook University student plus two (2) guests, or Open.
In order to accommodate student organizations that are affiliated with social Fraternity and Sorority organizations (local, regional or national), the sponsoring organization may host a maximum of thirty (30) fraternity or sorority affiliate guests at their event. An authorized Organization Officer, who must be a currently enrolled and matriculated Stony Brook student, must sign in all guests on the guest list at the entrance of the program. The represented student and organization will be held responsible and accountable for the actions of all guests that are signed in. Guests must still abide by all policies and procedures regarding admittance to the event.
